Forum: GratefulDead Subject: FLAC HELP?! for Newbie

I have read the FAQ's and downloaded the software recommended to play FLAC files..

MY question: Where are the FLAC files located to download?

Where do I click to start the download?

In the Information: should I be clicking the Flac FingerPrint, or the Checksums?

Please help. Am I missing something here?

My only other advice would be to go to Phil Lesh's website and click the links on how to download from there. He has some good pointers about how to get started and what you need.

FLAC files (or SHN) can only be downloaded from audience (aud) sources for Grateful Dead shows. There is no place to do that from this site for the soundboard sources. If you want soundboards in lossless quality you will need to go to the bittorrent sites.

For downloading FLAC from auds here you can see a table after the set list towards the bottom of the page and the files for each track are there for downloading. Click away or I believe you can use the down them all feature from firefox to make it a little quicker.

You can use this as an example:

Good luck and have fun!

Alright, Butch and Sundance...you two are spending a little too much time with each other. Next thing you know you'll be fighting over that cute little bicycle rider.

You both have accumulated two small "Crendenza Certificates for being nice to New Posters" and I will mail them out with your prizes (one half scoop Here Comes the Fudge) when it cools off.

Yes those responses were frighteningly similar.

I must admit I did chuckle when I saw that, I knew I should have used the 8/3/82 as my example!

"(one half scoop Here Comes the Fudge)"


resembles remarkably the contents of any one of "ah-um-err-um-wtf-um-ah's" posts

If you are not using Mozilla Fire Fox I think you need to DL each file individually. The only shows that you can DL the files for are the AUD (Audience) recordings.

Check out http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-06-30.aud.weiner.100346.flac16

Scroll down to where it says Audio files and DL the FLAC ones, also DL the information files as these are used to verify the Audio files. The 'other files' are not needed but usually are helpful as they contain notes etc.

DL and use Trader's little helper.

The SBD recordings show the information files but these are just that - information - the SBD recordings are 'stream only'. There are plenty of high quality AUDs.
